Brief Profile  

I did my Fellow Program in Management from IIM Calcutta in Operations Management with Economics being my minor area. The title of my thesis was "Perspectives in Supply Chain Coordination and Supply Chain Efficiency". Prior to joining IIM Calcutta for my doctoral programme, I did my M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Calcutta securing 2nd rank. My specialization was Optimization Techniques and Operations Research with elective paper in Mathematical Economics. After completion of my doctorate, I joined the corporate with JDA Software (a leading firm in the Supply Chain Consulting domain) as a Senior Business Consultant in the domain of Strategic Services. At JDA, I got trained in multiple tools like JDA Demand (used for Demand Forecasting), JDA Sales and Operations Planning, JDA Inventory Optimization and JDA Supply Chain Planner (used for Aggregate Production Planning and Materials Requirement Planning).

My research interests include Supply Chain Management and Applications of Game Theory in the context of Supply Chain Management. I have also started taking interests in the application of Operations Research and Statistics in Sports.

My hobbies mainly include Quizzing, Watching Football (Liverpool FC supporter) and analyzing elections.
